You cannot buy class. Dollars or ducats, no matter how many billions sit in a person’s bank account, class includes compassion for other human beings, and Donald Trump has none. He looks particularly bad when compared to his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
On the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, the war to end all wars people hoped, President Obama tweeted his message to the American people. Obama wrote, in sharp contrast to Trump:
‘To all our veterans and your families: thank you. There’s no tribute that can truly match the magnitude of your service and sacrifice. But all of us can do our best to live up to the American values of service, responsibility, generosity, and citizenship that you helped defend.’
President Obama first reached out to all those who offered to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country and many who did, “To all our veterans and your families: thank you.” Conversely, Trump noted the “Beautiful ceremony” and “Many World leaders” who attended.
Obama noted soldiers’ “service and sacrifice.” Trump added to his own schedule “off to Suresnes American Cemetery to make speech.”
President 44 then referred to American values: “service, responsibility, generosity, and citizenship.” President 45 commented on his speech, followed by more of his schedule “Then back to the U.S.A:”
‘Beautiful ceremony today in Paris commemorating the end of World War One. Many World leaders in attendance. Thank you to
@EmmanuelMacron, President of France! Now off to Suresnes American Cemetery to make speech in honor of our great heroes! Then back to the U.S.A.’
